I'm looking for culture.
Sounds like a line from a tourist in the Patpong district of Bangkok. But no, really. Part of this Bronstein-At-Large deal is supposed to be about focusing on the intersection of culture and current events (also known as "news.") That may sound like an excuse to blog about anything but, well, OK, maybe it is.
The problem at the moment is that my own cultural (and news) references are limited, like most people's, to what I know, already have stored, or stumble across. As Christiane Amanpour said to Wolf Blitzer one day in a shocking and great bit of TV cable news candor - after Wolf had asked, "So, Christiane, what IS happening in Basra!?": "Well, Wolf, I'm actually about 20 miles outside Basra. I can only tell you what I can see."
To fix that line of sight dilemma, please use the comment section to suggest blogs, web sites or other sources of information you find most interesting and useful to you, and why.
